Thanks for the encouraging words Kanwisch. That was really nice. I had actually 'made' myself go out for a ride on Wednesday even though I didn't want to and I regretted it. It was an awful ride and really depressing. I just couldn't twist it and then when I finally forced myself to, it was pretty bad. I wasn't in the right state of mind. How did you crash (if you don't mind posting it)?
My saving grace has been having a great riding partner. He actually canceled a nice ride he had planned for Saturday and rode for over an hour to come drag me out of the house and back on the bike. I guess I was scared after all the recent crashes so he talked me into a slow paced ride, then increased the pace slightly over the course of the day (without me even realizing it). By the end of the day I was riding like normal and having fun. Death wasn't even crossing my mind anymore, just thoughts of body position and lines. Just like normal. It blows me away how much bikers look out for each other sometimes.
